So you started playing Starfield and then got mad about the inventory space you get when you start your in-game journey? Do you want to increase your carry capacity in the game? If yes, keep reading this article. Starfield has various RPG mechanics that make it both a very interesting game and a very grindy and challenging one. Weight is a crucial aspect of this game since it determines how much you can carry. You have a fixed weight limit that defines how many items you can carry with you on the go. In addition to this, your spaceship also has a weight stat that will add to the total you can fly with in-game.
The most basic ways to play an RPG are all common elements of Starfield. The game is a graphical marvel but is stuck to the same roots most RPGs have. In this article, we are going to share details on how you can increase your weight stat. In order to do this, you will have to invest some points in stats and look for unique items that provide buffs. Keep reading to find out more.
Starfield: How to increase Carry Capacity?
Carry Capacity in Starfield is the total weight you can burden yourself with. Each player starts with a base weight of 135 kilos (which is not a lot, trust us). This can be increased in due course, as you can invest points into various in-game stats. These stats are basically attributes that change the way you play the game. They make you stronger, weaker, faster, more stamina-efficient or allow you to carry more weight. Alternatively, you can use clever inventory management to carry additional weight in the game. To carry the most weight, you will need to follow some of these tips and tricks:
1). Invest in the Weight-lifting Stat/Skill
Upgrading this stat/skill allows you to carry more weight. It increases the carry capacity cap and increases how much you can carry before becoming encumbered. To increase this skill, all you need to do is sprint distances after having a 75% full or more inventory.
2). Trade with your companion
You usually have a companion during your in-game journey. Luckily for you, you can trade goods and items with them and reduce the load you are carrying. This is helpful to carry just a little bit more than your maximum capacity since it can be traded between people.
3). Inventory management
There are some foods or consumables that temporarily increase your weight cap. Use them to increase your weight cap and unload that weight into a storage place like the ship’s cargo hold before the timer runs out. UC Battlemeal Multipacks are a good example of consumables that increase this stat.
4). Ship cargo hold
Your ship’s cargo hold has much more carrying capacity than your backpack. You can unload cargo into this and reduce your own weight.
5). Lounge Locker and Captains Locker
The Lounge Locker is a locker you get when you join Constellation. This has an infinite storage capacity and can be used to store almost all the very heavy gear you have. It is also in your lounge, so you can use it to prep for missions and expeditions. The Captain’s locker is a separate locker in your ship with an additional 40kg of storage that you can use to increase the number of things you are carrying. It can be found near the pilot’s seat.
6). Freestar Collective Magazine
Collecting each issue or copy of this magazine provides a 5-kilo increase in carry capacity. This is also permanent, so you might want to make use of this to increase your stat points without investing in the Weight-lifting stat. However, finding them isn’t as easy as it sounds. So, the choice is yours.
You can increase how much stuff you have with you and can carry in these clever ways in Starfield. If you found this article helpful, consider visiting Android Gram for more articles just like this.
